We are pleased to announce the 11th Joint European Summer School on Technology Enhanced Learning, to take place from Monday, July 6th to Friday, July 10th, 2015 in Ischia, Italy. Pre-summer school activities are organized all day on Sunday, July 5th. The summer school aims to encourage participants to adopt a critical stance in thinking about the role of technologies in providing opportunities for learners and the potential of these opportunities in terms of learning. The summer school provides a stimulating learning environment where participants are given opportunities to: develop research skills; increase their knowledge base; collaborate with others in their own and complementary research areas; engage in debate; have access to experts in the field; and discuss their own work. The programme covers topics from a broad range of domains which contribute to advancing the field of Technology Enhanced Learning. TEL research projects are encouraged to provide doctoral candidates with a perspective of the state-of-the-art research under study in their working groups. The programme will also include practical and methodological workshops as well as opportunities for doctoral candidates to develop their personal research and discuss their doctoral work.


Doctoral candidates should submit their applications online no later than March 25th, 2015. Please, download the application form, fill it in, and upload it to EasyChair. Please tick the appropriate box: “Doctoral Candidate Application”.

Accommodation & Social Events

The Summer School will take place in Ischia, Italy. It will be hosted at the Continental Hotel.

Hotel Continental Hotel Continental

Ischia is one of the most famous seaside and touristic spa centres of Italy and the world, it is located in the Gulf of Naples and it is renowned for its mild climate, spectacular scenery, sprawling spa towns, and picturesque small towns. Ischia is universally known as "the green island" for its lush vegetation. The Aragonese Castle, the Chiesa del Soccorso in Forio, the Sant’Angelo village, the green tufa architectures of Serrara Fontana are only some of the many beautiful places there are to visit.

Cost of Summer School

The cost for doctoral candidates is €630 (including accommodation - 7 nights in double rooms, meals and excursions). Special arrangements for doctoral candidates who would like a single room can be made. In this case the fees will be €770.

Call for Lectures & Workshops

If you would like to offer a lecture or workshop at the summer school we invite you to submit a proposal (about ½ page to a full page) describing your contribution, which should demonstrate how your presentation/activity will benefit the doctoral candidates attending the summer school (mainly early to mid-stage). If your proposal is selected it will be published on the summer school website.

We encourage interactive sessions rather than lecture-style presentations, and your proposal could include details about how you plan to engage the doctoral candidates. Lectures are usually no longer than 45 minutes and workshops are usually 90 minutes. Some workshops run 2 x 90 minutes. Lectures should provide students with insight into the state-of-the-art in one aspect of TEL or methodologies for conducting research in TEL. Workshops should provide hands-on opportunities to work with new technologies or develop research techniques.

Please submit your proposal to EasyChair. Be sure to tick the correct box: lecture or workshop proposal.

Please note that speakers and workshop organizers are expected to cover the costs of their trip and accommodation (typically through the TEL projects they are working for).

Doctoral candidates applying to participate in the summer school are also invited to propose workshops. In this case they must make TWO submissions: the JTEL doctoral candidate application and the workshop submission.
